EZ-EL Wire 4th of July Hat 




Using a scissor, cut a 3/4 in. hole at the top corner of the hat. Mimic what is being done in 
the picture or poke a hole wherever you want to start off your design. Poking this hole will 
help conceal the start of the wire and allow the output wires to be concealed inside the hat, 





String EL wire through the hole you 
have just made in Step 1 .

• Zip tie the red, white, and blue EL 
wire together. 

• Once the wire is through the hole, 
pull the EL wire all the way through 
unti the very end. Make sure to 
conceal the non-plastic part inside 
of the hat. 



Step 4 




• You can do any pattern you choose 
to. Place the wire anywhere you 
want to start your design. I chose 
to start the process at the top of 
the hat. 

• Poke the needle from inside the hat 
through to the outside, around the 
wire and back inside the hat. 
Continue two more times. The 
string should end up back inside 
the the hat where you tie it off with 
the starting end.

• Wrap it to an edge and sew it at the curving point. 

• Put the EL wires together. Sew the beginning to the side of the hat first, then start twisting. 
Once you are satisfied with the length of the twist pattern go ahead and sew the end point 
of the twist pattern to the hat. (I twisted the wire until I used up all the wire.) Then twist-tie 
the end point to prevent it from unraveling. 

• Using the twisted pattern wrap the wire around the hat or line it up to create your own 
design.

Poke a hole at the brim of the hat 
or anywhere your design ends. 
Then string the excess wire 
through the hole. This helps 
conceal the wire and allows it to 
rest on the side of the hat.
